Q: Is bleaching your products harmful to me, my family, or the environment?

No. 100% of the pulp used in our products is elemental chlorine free (ECF). If pulp is said to be ECF, it means that no elemental chlorine gas was used during the bleaching process. For more information read this (Facts About the Use of Bleaching Agents in Tissue and Paper Towel Manufacturing) from the American Forest & Paper Association.

Q: Why can't I find my favorite Puffs box?

A: We offer different box designs in our Puffs lineup because consumer preferences vary. Stores choose which versions they want to carry, so you might want to mention your interest to the store manager. Keep in mind that our box designs are packed in mixed cases, and retailers are not able to order a case of one particular design. It's also possible the one you like is temporarily sold out or is only available during a particular season. Visit our Products section to see the designs we offer.

Q: I need help with my school project; how is paper made?

A: We're delighted you want to learn more about Puffs! In general, our products are made of processed wood pulp from softwood (pine and spruce) and hardwood trees (eucalyptus, oak, and maple). Keep in mind that sometimes the specific information requested is either confidential or unavailable. Unfortunately, we don't have samples available to send. You can learn more about the papermaking process and the history of paper by visiting https://www.wipaper.org.

Q: Why is there lint or fuzz on Puffs facial tissue?

A: Lint is directly related to the degree of paper softness. The softer the paper, the more lint produced during the high-speed tissue-making process. We regularly shut down our manufacturing lines to clean our equipment and remove the lint buildup. And when humidity is very high, our lines are closed and cleaned as needed to prevent lint from dropping into our paper products.

Q: I have a question about colds and allergies. May I ask you?

A: We would love to answer your questions, but we're not medical professionals. But Puffs does have tips about colds, allergies, and even nose care for parents with toddlers. Check out our Tips & Advice for more information.

Q: Why did you change your Puffs commercials?

A: Just as we updated our Puffs packaging with a new look, we also refreshed our advertising.
